Re: force use proxy

Hello.

This is what WCCP is designed for. You can read about it here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3550/software/release/12.2_44_se/configuration/guide/swwccp.html

A much more messy approach (and probably unscalable) would be to use policy routing on your switch to divert all web traffic to your proxy server (if your switch supports PBR)

Kind Regards

Hello.

This wiki link lists some vendors that support it

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Cache_Communication_Protocol

It does not list ISA but you could always ask the vendor.

Re: force use proxy

does WCCP can cooperate using an ISA server as proxy machine or can work only with cisco systems ?
